This book includes all Giulianiís studies and exercises, as follows:

Op. 1    Studio
Giulianiís famous technical work for the guitar, including the famous left hand and right hand studies, etc.   This book includes all four parts of this well-known opus 1 (many modern editions of opus 1 have only one or two of the four parts)                 
Op. 48   Esercizio
The famous 24 virtuoso pieces
Op. 51     Eighteen progressive lessons
Op. 98     Delightful studies
Op. 100   Etudes
Op. 139   First Lessons

The music is all Urtext, re-engraved but presenting strictly the original text without any alterations at all: no modern fingering, no changes in dynamics, only what the original texts gave.  That way the reader can be certain of having the authentic text.  The only fingering given is Giuliani's own. No fingering has been changed and no modern fingering is added as it is in other editions.

"I recently ordered your new reprints of the Sor and Giuliani studies [in the clothbound editions], which arrived last week and are absolutely wonderful" (a customer in Switzerland, June 2013).

"'Giuliani Studies' is a very good book" (an Italian guitarist, March 2003)

"los estudios completos para guitarra de Mauro Giuliani... Obras especialmente dirigidas a estudiantes ... legibles y bien editadas" (Acordes (Spanish magazine), no. 16, 2003).

"Dr. Jeffery has once again brought to the public works that are truly groundbreaking in their scope ... endlessly inventive and incredibly challenging ... the use of only the master's fingering will be instructive to the student." (Guitart International, April / June 2003).

ERRATUM: on page 69, the key signature of this piece should be three sharps throughout.

Paper edition ISBN 978-0-948607-35-6, cloth edition ISBN 978-0-948607-36-3.
